True...but some hide as refugees & for that reason I can understand scrutinizing people from that country a little harder.

Life on Mars...I Mean TJ: July 4th In Exile

July 4th In Exile

The Fourth of July- the epitome of all American holidays, because let's face it, it is America's holiday! It's a day full of celebrating "freedom" (I tend to use that term loosely) by barbequing it up with your friends and family while drinking large quantities of alcohol and lighting off explosives. That sounds like the most American thing you could come across. But what about Americans like me? Who aren't in America anymore? Should we celebrate a country that "forced" (I also use that term…

Clorinda Chávez Galdós Bell, La Huida de Egipto (The Flight Into Egypt), 2002, Oil on canvas, 31.5” x 47”  Bell writes, “It’s from Matthew 2, 13-15, a common theme in art that identifies the Holy Family with the plight of immigrants. The flight into Egypt is shown with the Virgin Mary, the Christ Child, and St. Joseph in company with the protecting archangel."

7, 6, 5, 4, 3....

There is one week left; one more week of preparations. One more week to do everything I can to enjoy my beautiful life in Portland. We went to church to celebrate Pentecost, just like normal. It still seems like life is going on as normal: Cecilia and I went to church together this weekend; I'm still working (and even picking up extra shifts); and Cecilia still has school. I feel like I can't quite comprehend that it's almost over. I'm still feeling like I'm going to be working my current…

Life on Mars...I Mean TJ: Border Stories Saturday: It Affects the US, Too!

Border Stories Saturday: It Affects the US, Too!

Today is World Press Freedom Day (or something like that) so I am sharing with you some Youtube videos dealing with this subject. For many years the PRI party ruled in Mexico, driving up the amount of corruption in the country. This ended for awhile, while the drug wars increased. People got tired of the corruption, then of the violence, and they started speaking up. Now Mexico's current president, Enrique Peña Nieto (EPN), member of the PRI party, wants to shut them up. This affects us all…

Border Stories Saturday: Borderland

Awhile back, a friend of mine posted a link on her personal Facebook page, and I thought I would pass it along to my Border Stories Saturday followers. It's an app produced by NPR and can be accessed here. Take some time to check it out and learn something about the places where our country connects with others. Did you learn anything? I know I sure did. I never realized how many things were left behind during crossing. Did anything stand out to you?
